Stunning EP filled with drones and abstract rythms
Keywords: Abstract; Experimental
|K.M. Krebs - The Jade Furnace II [treetrunk030] - K.M. Krebs|
This is the second in The Jade Furnace series of albums. Like the first, the name is derived from a Taoist alchemical metaphor that denotes the space in which the great work of alchemical transformation takes place. I have always felt a very strong resonance between the process of creating music and the symbolism and metaphors of alchemy. This album continues my own exploration of the similarities and possibilities between the two...

|K.M. Krebs - K.M. Krebs Constant [treetrunk045] - K.M. Krebs|
This shimmering, textured drone by the amazing K.M. Krebs is a new "Constant". Treetrunk feels that the piece aptly fulfills the requirements of being a "Constant", in that it is consistent, droney, minimal, and over 30 minutes long. It also just so happens that the piece is very beautiful.
Keywords: ambient; longform; drone

|K.M. Krebs - Fog Sequences - [treetrunk021] - K.M. Krebs|
K.M. Krebs has been kind enough to approach Treetrunk Records with his latest release, "Fog Sequences". He explains: "Inspired by a series of fog photographs I recently saw at the National Museum of Contemporary Art here in Korea. All the tracks began as output from a generative FM drone generator which was run through unpredictable distortion effects (all made in csound). The results were then used as a basis for composing these 6 tracks." Mysterious, ever-changing, generative-- these unique so...

|K.M. Krebs - Phosphorous [treetrunk025] - K.M. Krebs|
Treetrunk recently learned that K.M. Krebs has returned to Canada, where his musical efforts continue: ". . .I played a show last weekend with some fellows from the US. The turnout was very small due to its accidental scheduling with another electronic show. Regardless, I had a good time since I hadn't played a live show for over two years. I was able to record it and wanted to offer it for release on Treetrunk...

|K.M. Krebs - The Light Will Fill the Darkness and Obliterate It [wh065] - K.M. Krebs|
The Light Will Fill the Darkness and Obliterate It is a poetic and richly textured work by Canadian sound artist K.M. Krebs. These tracks are blended together into a shifting exploration as evocative and powerful as the titles they bear. I find this to be excellent headphone music, and with eyes closed I am easily abducted into very strange realms. K.M. Krebs has become a well-known and respected artist in the netlabel scene...

Treetrunk is proud to present a whimsical and intelligent set of generative pieces by K.M. Krebs.

|K.M. Krebs - Oneiromancy [wh046] - K.M. Krebs|
"Oneiromancy (the art of foretelling the future through dreams) is an hypnotic ambient journey through the underworld of the unconscious and the dreams which abide therein." --K.M. Krebs Originally a CD-R release, this ambient trek by Canadian sound artist K.M. Krebs is now a netlabel release on Webbed Hand. Distinguished not only by the remarkable sounds herein, but also very evocative track titles, complemented by detail-rich cover art, this is the sort of album one can spend a lot of time lis...

|833-45 - Wavelength [nt020] - K M Krebs|
K M Krebs returns to No Type for a new five-track EP whose tracks are, surprisingly, unnamed. Wavelength is a space hike of sorts, a unique blend of otherworldly radio frequencies & elemental beats.

|833-45 - Distance [nt012] - K M Krebs|
Distance is the debut EP from K M Krebs, now a prominent figure of the netlabel scene. This stunning debut establishes the shortwave texture aesthetic that would be the defining mark of 833-45 in his following albums, but is also host to some seriously dirty, broken rhythms.
Keywords: Rhythmic Noise; Ambient Techno
|K.M. Krebs - An Orange Rainbow [NSH052] - k.m. krebs|
Originally released a while back on Subversco, which recently vanished. This six track mix of B-movie electro-kitch needed a new home and running a net label gives you the advantage of releasing your own work.

On "Symmetries" K.M.Krebs presents three minimal ambient pieces with a duration of about 25 minutes.

On this unlikely collaborative EP, K M Krebs (833-45) & Tomas Jirku each contribute one new track, & then remix each other. Each protagonist's contribution is in line with what they are best known for: meticulous ragged ambience for Krebs, sultry minimal house for Jirku. What else can you ask for?
